Last minute Valentine ideas

Every now and again I feel the need to talk about something other than beauty and fashion. I feel like I should offer advice on something other than what color to wear and how to look thinner. Well...today is your lucky day!  

This morning I appeared on the WNDU Morning Show and offered some last minute Valentine gift ideas.  Get your shopping list ready - there's something for everyone!


There is a new trend out therhttps://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=9117951317629263763#editor/target=post;postID=3329607560768169457e, and it’s called GALentine. Why wait for some guy to ask you out, or sit home alone?  Go out with your girlfriends, and show them how much they mean to you.

I love this idea.  There may be someone in your circle of friends who is going through a hard time. Show them that you support them with a stackable ring. Image your friend who is fighting breast cancer, opening a gift of a beautiful pink ring at dinner...and then all of your friends gathered at the table hold up their hand wearing the same ring. AWESOMENESS!

Stackable rings – JR Fox $30 - $80

with the purchase of a gift certificate of at least $300, you will get an amazing lunch, info at lunch about defining your signature style, AND a certified style expert to help you shop. Great idea for your wife OR go in on a gift certificate with a few friends, and make it a girls day!

·        Or a Love Mom bracelet from a new boutique. Charm bracelets are always a great idea because going forward, you don't have to think of a gift...just add a charm!

 Nothing says I love you more than something DIY. This is a 6x6 scrapbook page holder, that I made into a calendar.  The plastic sleeves and the holder were about $12 from the craft store. Great for a husband or Dad!
Custom hand made calendar - $12 ish from craft stores

For teachers? These little bags are about $5 for 4 of them from Michael's craft store.  Fill them with goodies from the Dollar Store, and include a note why you think that person is special.  I found this note pad that has you fill out why you love someone - something like this would be a perfect compliment to the Goody Bags.  The note pad was $5 from Barnes and Noble.
When I have no idea what to get someone, I always think BOOKS!  Consider a limited special edition of a classic romance novel. 
Love Books - $10 - $35 Barnes and Noble

Crate traditions with your family so next year you don't have to think about what to get!  In out family, we always get a pair of PJs and one box of candy. This time of year cozy PJs are on clearance.  Found these at Target for $12.
PJs - $10-$12 Target

Is your tradition flowers?  Add a gold dipped rose  - that is something she will have forever. 
Gold dipped roses - $90 JR Fox

If you are the guy who like to get something blingy for your gal, go the extra mile this year, and present it to her on top (or with) a gourmet cupcake.
Cupcake $3 – Gigi’s
